Q: NOVA Viking drill press and the headstock comes preinstalled onto the column however when mounted onto the base the headstock is not in alignment with the base (10-15 degrees off center). To correct this is it just loosening two screws that appear to hold the headstock to the column and twisting it straight?


Using a 50mm Allen key

Unscrew both sections...

Carefully twist the headstock to align with the base.

Replace the screws and DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!!!  No need to strong arm the screws.
